Documentary screening and discussion with director Michael Collins and producer Marty Syjuco
Tickets are free and open to the public.
Almost Sunrise follows two Iraq veterans, Tom Voss and Anthony Anderson, both tormented by depression for years after they returned home and pushed to the edge of suicide. The two embark on an extraordinary journey, a 2,700 mile walk across the country from Wisconsin to California, in order to reflect on their haunting experiences of war and to save themselves. More information can be found at the Film and Media Studies Visiting Filmmakers page.
Our screening and discussion will be the closing event for George Mason University's fifth annual Day of Service. Our event is sponsored by Honors College, Film and Media Studies, and Film and Video Studies.
